is president obama really cares about the deficit. if there is something he noticed in the first two years when the economic crisis had to be front and center, the thing he wanted to deal with was the long-run deficit. the idea that he went on a spending binge if you don't make threats like that is crazy. the evidence is there that he put spending cuts on the table. he asked them for them to be paired with tax increases as well. there is more good will than people realize. more agreement that we have such a big budget problem that will we're going to fire on all cylinders. we have to cut spending. frankly, we have raise more revenue. >> you're listening to the california program and our speakers are economic experts. we are discussing national, regional, and global economic challenges. you can find video online. there's a series of questions around employment and job growth. what what is your outlook on job growth? >> i will start. i think -- i will say i was here last year and i'm more optimistic this year than last year. we made a significant amount of progress. it looks like housing prices h

we have had five straight trillion dollars worth of defense deficits to pump it up and we get $85 billion a month in transfusions a month from the fed and we are still limping along like a mature and quite frankly modest economy. >> eleanor? >> i think these numbers reflect the fact that government is shrinking and the defense department really pulled back in the last quarter of last year. it is a cautionary sign and looks like both parties are kind of sleepwalking their way toward a sequester. the ropes don't want to -- the republicans don't want to give up anything on the revenue side they would rather take a hit in spending. the democrats have protect social security, pell grants and medicaid, so they are not going to cave first. so if neither party blinks, the sequester will go ahead and we'll see further contraction in the economy. but you know, i'm not that glammy. i take my cue are from mark sandy, an accomplished economist. he says in 2013 we are going to go along with steady, modest growth but the housing market is truly come back and 2014 looks like. >>> tell mark the co
really needed was deficit reduction. and this is a period in which we didn't come to a big deficit reduction deal. what we did is raise taxes. it cut the deficit a bit, but not a big deal. what happened to the markets? somehow we kept adding jobs and the stock market did really well. it all worked out reasonably okay. so here is what we learned. cutting government spending hurts economic growth. no doubt about it. that means doing it in a bad economy may not be such a good idea. but increasing taxes a bit, not coming to the big deficit deal. the private sector and even the markets don't seem all that concerned. the last week should cause a lot of people in washington to re-think what they're doing. i am not optimistic that will happen. joining me now, former economic adviser to vice president joe biden, jared bernstein, a man who is always re-thinking what he is doing, how are you? >> i'm fine, ezra. >> and what else did you see in the reports? you got a good eye, what caught yours? >> one thing i saw was the revisions to last year's employment growth was such that i thought we wer
people like laura tyson writing columns calling for the need for a plan for faster growth, not deficit reduction. what is the president -- i know you've talked about how all the president's plans envision job creation, but what does the president tell his advisors when he sees these signs of a sluggish recovery? what is he asking in the way of things to speed recovery, create jobs and stimulate growth? >> i'll go to the narrow question first. every time the president meets with his economic advisors to discuss policy proposals and refinements to existing policies, the focus is on job creation and economic growth. and that includes when we have discussions about deficit reduction. as i've said many times and as the president has made clear, deficit reduction is not a goal unto itself. it is a means to, if done right , the desired goal, which is greater growth and greater job creation. as part of an overall economic policy. i would note that today's jobs figures and the revisions that we saw in previous months' jobs figures mean that over 35 months we have created 6.1 million private sec
have worked together to reduce our deficit by $2.5 trillion. that is a good start, but to get the rest of the way, we need a balanced set of reforms. for example, we need to lower the cost of health care like programs like medicare. we cannot pass the burden. these reforms must go hand-in- hand with eliminating excess spending in our tax code so that the wealthiest cannot take advantage of loopholes and reductions that are not available to most americans. 2012 can be a year of solid growth and more jobs and higher wages. -- 2013 can be a year of solid growth and more jobs and higher wages. everyone in washington needs to focus on what is right for the country, on what is right for you and your families. that is how we will get our economy moving faster. it will strengthen our middle class. we will build a country that rewards the effort and determination of every single american. thank you. have a great weekend. >> hello. my name is susan brooks. it is a pleasure to speak to you from my home state on indiana. my husband and i have raised two children here. i've been a us attorney for t
? >> the budget is the most imminent issue. we do have a structural budget deficit in the city. we need to deal with the short- term balancing of the budget in a way that does not decimate basic city services that people rely on but also to address our long term structural budget deficit. that means implementing budget reforms that will smooth out the budget process so that it is not a boom-bust process. that means reforming our pension and retiree system so that they are stable and do not drain the general fund. that is a big aspect of it. another huge issue is the deferred maintenance on our infrastructure. we have a lot of infrastructure that has been deteriorating because we have not maintained properly. that includes roads, sewer systems, muni. we need to be much more diligent about maintaining our infrastructure. some of the big citywide issues that impact the district include transportation. we had more muni service and some other districts. it is not always reliable. some of the major bus lines in the district are not reliable. we have major projects like the renovation of delores park.
years ago? we started following the same math approach that created our federal deficits at the national level. democrats and republicans alike in this very chamber had voted to cut taxes for millionaires and to increase state spending without paying for either one. the result? $1.7 billion dollar deficit. that is how it works. it is failing to deliver results. underperforming schools, tuition hikes, rising in crime outside of baltimore. in 2007, together we started making that her choices. we cut spending growth, we had a penny to the sales tax to improve our children's education. we made our tax code more progressive and fair. we put concrete acts and to close our. when the national recession hit, wiping jobs and revenue across the country, including here, other states try to find prosperity. they found that this only made things worse. laying off police officers, firefighters, teachers. they are hoping that somehow it would trickle down to the rest of us. in maryland, we made better choices. we made government more efficient and effective. for the first time we started sending public
street journal," chief economic correspondent. welcome. you wrote a piece saying how the trust deficit is hurting the economy. what we're trying to do? >> guest: we usually talk about things but budget deficits and trade deficits with things we can measure. what i'm talking about is the breakdown of trust in american society. it would take her in institutions that make our economy go. when you look at measures of trust from surveys by gallup for the pew institute that americans have, it's a very important institution including the media newspaper, television, congress, banks, large corporations, public school, public union. if all been going down for many years and allowed them, declining interest intensified leading up to and going into the financial crisis and there's a lot of reasons for the things we can talk about. but what were chained to get out of the story is this matters economy but trust breaks down. a nobel prize-winning economist named kenneth arrow for 40 years ago set every commercial transaction hasn't been a bad element of trust when you trust your counterparty come ne
's a good idea. but my whole philosophy is i don't think the deficit is our top issue. i think if you're really concerned about the deficit we should have gone over the fiscal cliff and cut the deficit that way. but if you aren't concerned about the deficit, if you think job growth is the most important thing and growth in general, then i don't think you should either cut taxes -- i don't think you should raise taxes or cut spending right now. i think you should focus just on stimulus. >> what they should do is slash across the board all these goofy departments, just really rip into them. and along with that pro-growth tax reform. especially pro-growth business tax reform. and then you'll have the kind of growth that keith is talking about that would actually solve the financial position. >> keith wants growth in general. i don't want growth in general. i want private sector growth. i don't want a bunch of phony government spending that's going to proup gdp numbers. i want private sector growth. if the president wants to make a deal where we get rid of some of these short-term spendin
the gross receipts is not bringing in as much money we are operating as a deficit but it the gross receipts is coming in a herself we might phase in in a shorter amount of time. thank you. and the schedules are broken out into four tiers there's a zero to one million and it's exempt and 2 had the to million and above. so businesses will be taxed at the progressive tier so if you're a business that has $3 million in revenue your first million is not taxes your million to 2.5 million is talked at the 2 to 2.5 million taxable followup u amount eaten the last $500,000 will be taxed. so here's an example i mean chris has provided a good example so one million will be taxed? one million taxed the 1 tier rate did i misquote that i miss stoke so once you reach over one million that first million is taxable. so correction. and then as i noted there's a small business under one million gross receipts is exemption in the gross receipts. the one is particularly for the business fee will increase in 2014 for all businesses and i think what i'd like for you to do is flip to page 2. where i see the chart
of the gdp. discretionary and entitlement spending, we have record-breaking deficits. no one is stopping it. nwe have a spending problem. we don't have a revenue problem. johnathon first. >> yeah, we don't, eric we tax enough and so much of what our tax dollars go to are not specified in the constitution. to the congressman's point. it is specified in the constitution. food stamps and fema and epa and healthcare and all of the other money is found no where in the constitution . it is it basically taxing people's lives . until congress gets that out of their head when they tax and borrow, they are hurting individual americans . it is getting out of the control. >> congressman can why gree we have a spending problem and not a revenue. >> we have. as the commission said we should do spending reductions and two dollars of every tax dollar . if i could. there are stow many, look at glaxco smith kline . 7 years they had hid from the fda. >> let's stay on topic congressman. stay on topic. wayne, let a talk about we sphent 5.8 trillion in the last four years and what do we have for it . a negative
times" economist argued why the u.s. should spend now and worry about deficit reduction later. here it is. >> dashing spending when you still have depressed economy is really destructive. it's probably even counterproductive even in purely fiscal terms. we should be sustaining government spending until we have a stronger economic recovery. >> this is not a hard call. as long as we have 4 million people who have been unemployed for more than a year, this is not a time to be worrying about reducing the budget deficit. give me something that looks more like a normal employment situation and i'll become a deficit hawk but not now. >> do you subscribe to that, jared? or is that too extreme? >> not at all. i think paul's exactly right. paul and i share the following thing. we're deficit doves in a down economy, and deficit hawks in a strong economy. at a time like this, what you really need is faster growth. by the way, not only will that help put more people to work, but it will actually help reduce your budget deficit ironically because those people will be working, paying taxes, they w
under. and the government that basically drove up the deficit and regional governments because region is very important in spain. also drove up this problem with big deficits. and there were not intended to. and so in each one of these you have somewhat of a different reason. the case of italy, a debt to gdp of over 120% and growing and the lack of action and trying to do anything about it by the former government once they came in as a technician, and by the way, technicians are great, but the amount of time is limited because they have no popular support. whether it be greece or italy. and as you know, the elections in italy, and we will see how he does, but you need popular mandates to get these changes really through. i am encouraged in the case of ireland. they're making good progress, getting back to the market, but there are still a lot of problems. the latest victim is cyprus. the banks held a lot of greek paper. they ran up the deficit there, and so they are the latest bailout case that we are going to see. but each country is different, and that leads to what is the same, an
the u.s. government can run its massive deficit is because the federal us have the -- the fedee has the ability to create money and that creates a huge temptation for politicians. with republicans and democrats. i don't believe we can deal with physical policy until we deal with monetary policy. in the early two thousands, the federal reserve had been here a long time. he's getting ready to retire, he wants to go out on a good note. interest rates are starting to be lowered and it creates negative interest rates. you can borrow at less than the inflation rate. right at the end of the term, greenspan realizes that he screwed up and the interest rates create an inverted yield curve. that's a natural and on and on. what it is means that short-term rates are higher than long-term rates. if you're going to make an investment, it is riskier. only the federal reserve can do that. banks make money and created and voted yield curves. the banking business is quirky. which means you can get higher interest rates and a backbone. so they went under this negative inverted interest rate. one reaso
. >> greg? >> well, i would add that ironically the budget deficit is falling, certainly as a percentage of gdp. and we will get next week i think on the tuesday from the congressional budget office new budget figures that show that, in fact, the deficit is dropping and dropping pretty significantly. >> guy, one last question to each of you, quickly. you've been watching the marks so long. we've got near records for stocks. gdp shrank, jobless growth, okay. why is the market so excited about what's happening either corporate profits or the economy, austin? >> you know, that is -- that's a good question. i think a lot of people have been asking it. i think we have been in the context of record corporate profits. and remember the fundamentals of the stock price, if you added up all the money that the market forecasts that the company will make in the future, that's how much the stock should be worth. so record corporate profits in some sense should have been reflected in higher prices already, and now -- and the only reason they weren't, i think, was because people were afraid washington m
to lift indians out of poverty. this makes sense whether or not we have a federal deficit. even if we had a zero deficit, many program cuts and determination would sbreels g.d.p. and expand -- increase g.d.p. the fiscal conservatives always say they want to cut spending but near i will all the focus in recent years have been trying to impose overall restraint by voting balanced budget. i'm not against the caps but they do not reduce the underlining pressure to spend. the only way to do that is challenge particular programs and make the argument that particular programs are harmful and wasteful, unconstitutional, unjust, and unneeded. to make lasting reforms congress needs to make the case to cut many dozens, hundreds of particular programs. if the republicans want to kill funding for big bird they have to make the case for it. they have to lay out the case and push on that for many months or many years to wear down the opposition. so the very few examples in recent decade where is we've been able to cut or limit or reform programs, there has been a build up and we've laid the ground work
parts of our budget and have to be addressed if we're going to gesome handle on the deficit problem going forward. >> you're part of the fix the debt organization trying to get congress to concentrate on entitlement reform. you have said in that capacity, in the end we're going to have to eliminate some programs. could some health care programs be included in that? >> both parties realize that they have to reorganize not simply cut deeply these entitlement programs. they serve a population that's very vulnerable. you have to be careful about shifting costs because they affect poor people and old people and disabled people in very different ways than they do the rest of us who have somewhat growing incomes. >> big transformation from the health care reform law really is next year in 2014, with the individual mandates and the state health exchanges to try to expand the coverage. 23 states have instead said that they want the federal government to run those exchanges. is that good participation? >> some of this may be transitional, to be fair to the states. they're taking on the medica
the clinton administration if we're going to pay off the deficit at some point. there is really no other way to do it without run away economic growth which we're not going to have. >> we're at a point where they have this so both sides are lined up for this battle going into may. if they propose any actual cuts in the senate on spending, i will buy you another one of those girlie drinks you have. >> all right. see, john. toby did get the last word. coming up, they were some of the biggest supporters of the health care law. but are unions starting to show buyers remorse? the cavuto on business gang on their new demand and why everyone may pay at the bottom of the hour. but up here first, nearly two-thirds of middle aged workers are doing something that someone here says could drive this number higher. whether you're young or old. this mid life crisis iser affecting you not their short-term agenda.
